Sponsored Edition: The Write Stuff

www.leichic.comYour thank you notes are barely worth the paper they’re printed on. That’s because you usually scribble a text-message-like note on a generic Mahalo card and call it done.

But just like with gifts, it’s the thought that counts.

Let Shauna Kahiapo show you how to let your gratitude – and love, affection and friendship – shine through in everything you write. The owner of the new Fresh Inc stationery store at Windward Mall, Kahiapo has handpicked the shop’s dozens of beautiful notecards, notebooks, and papers.
The store feels more like a chic and comfortable living room than www.leichic.coma retail shop, and carries everything to make your writing noteworthy, whether you’re jotting down a list for yourself, mailing a formal invitation or sending birthday wishes. There are Waste Not note sets made from recycled materials, notebooks and notecards designed with dragonfly or Asian flower patterns, even papers that have seeds embedded in them, so you can send a note to a loved one that can be planted to grow into a flower.

Beyond writing items, Fresh Inc also carries trendy, eco-chic totes with polka dots, stripes, bohemian or solid patterns (perfect for groceries or as an everyday handbag); sleek day organizers with a calendar and to-do list right on the foldable cover, unique www.leichic.comnotebooks decorated with pressed flowers, and a wide selection of books.
